ABOUT Your Capt. Larry Bell

With 35+ years of fishing experience under my belt, I have honed my skills to target trophy inshore fish using artificial bait. Transitioning to running charters has allowed me to combine my passion for angling and the beauty of our local waters while sharing them with clients. My enthusiasm for catching fish and being out on the water drives me, and I am thrilled to introduce as many people as possible to this incredible world. I consider myself extremely fortunate to turn my passion into a livelihood. Let me be your guide through the bays and flats of the Coastal Bend area as we hunt for that once-in-a-lifetime fish!

“A friend of mine and I had two full great days of fishing with Larry Bell.  We have been fishing one or two times a year in the bay for the past 20 years and consider ourselves pretty good fishermen.  The trip with Larry Bell seemed like adding a third good friend to the trip.  Larry has a great personality and made the trip fun.  He knows the water well in the Rockport-Aransas Pass area and knew lots of spots to fish that all produced fish.  He is also very good at bait selection and introduced us to a number of new baits and presentation techniques that produced fish when the bite seemed too slow.  We each averaged catching between 15-20 fish per day with enough keepers mixed in to make it a really great trip.  I had caught speckled trout up to 28 inches in the past and lost one on this trip that would probably been a lifetime trout for me….so close.  I highly recommend booking a trip with Larry Bell if you want to have a great time on artificial action.”
